It appears that the second half of Andy Muschietti’s It will be lensing much sooner than we thought. Rather than waiting to see how the first installment does before audiences, it appears that New Line is gearing up to roll cameras on the second installment later this month!
My Entertainment World is reporting that principal photography on the second installment will begin March 17, 2017. According to the outlet, the project will be shooting under the secret title Accordion. The site lists the plot outline below:
“A promise made twenty-eight years ago calls seven adults to reunite in Derry, Maine, where as teenagers they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Unsure that their Losers Club had vanquished the creature all those years ago, the seven had vowed to return to Derry if IT should ever reappear.”
MEW is reporting that the project will be shot in Toronto, which is where the first installment was lensed. None of this is confirmed by the studio at this point but we will keep you looped in as soon as we hear anything additional.
The first film stars Bill Skarsgård, Finn Wolfhard, Jaeden Lieberher, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Sophia Lillis, and Jeremy Ray Taylor.
The 1991 television miniseries and the forthcoming remake are both based on the Stephen King book of the same name. No additional details on the upcoming project are available at this time but stay tuned to the site in the coming months and we will keep you apprised as more news is announced.
